EAAS Archive & History
EAAS Archive in Wittenberg

For students who want to explore the history of EAAS or conduct research on American Studies in Europe in general, the EAAS Archive in Wittenberg (Germany) provides new opportunities. Located in one of Wittenberg's historic university buildings, the archive is administered by former EAAS president Hans-Jürgen Grabbe.

The archive was founded in 2006 as part of the EAAS Archives and History Project in order to professionally preserve, collect, organize and make available the records, papers and memorabilia of the European Association for American Studies. The origin of the collection goes back to the initiative of the late Hans Bungert (EAAS President 1988-92), who first undertook the task of preserving the files of former EAAS officers. The holdings now include EAAS related papers of A.N.J. den Hollander, Harry Allen, Maurice Gonnaud, Sergio Perosa, Hans Bungert, Heinz Ickstadt, Orm Øverland, and Chris Bigsby. Their invaluable contributions have been complemented with materials like newsletters or conference programs generously donated to the Wittenberg archive by several EAAS members. During an on-site visit in April 2007, the EAAS Board took the opportunity to have a close look at the current state of the collections. Though still far from complete, the correspondences, records of meetings and conferences, Treasurer's reports, and publications (including a complete set of the EAAS Newsletter) make it possible to trace the association's development over fifty years.
